"I make art to positively influence the preservation of African American culture. My blindness has connected me with the disabled community, where I have experienced others with the tremendous courage to rise from the circumstances and live their dreams. I find this very inspiring, and through my own creative efforts I hope to inspire others in the same manner. In suffering as well as in times of joy, I believe that art has the power to uplift, illuminate, and give validation to the existence of the human spirit." - Charles Curtis Blackwell  artist, poet, playwright
